My participation for the SID2019

programmerman-animatedWHAT is special this year with my participation on SID2019? 

I created a ===> #GlobalCollaboration #blog in 2017 <=== from  (my pseudo on twitter) & @ICTPHMS  for  about . The authors are from Luxembourg/Europe (me), one female teacher from the USA and a male teacher from the USA WHO are using my blog post to learn together and sharing THEIR practice with YOU dear readers.

Well, there is a lot of different views about ===> Digital CitiZENship <=== WE will explore WHAT could be THE BEST way to teach and to learn about Digital CitiZENship (hashtag on Twitter is #digcit).

Here below the links of OUR blog post:

How does it come that I post Global-Collaboration blog posts? Well, once the #ProfessionalDevelopment is Upto-Date, one does understand THAT learning in a team brings out a win-win situation and that a generation exchange is benefit for all of the participants as anyone learns from each other. BTW: here below other Global-Collaboration blogs with teaching persons from AustraliaUSAFranceLuxembourg (me):

CyberHygiene For Beginners, Easy To follow Steps For Anyone | Reflexes To Get Used To

Internet safety is the responsibility of EVERYONE! It isn’t actually THAT difficult to apply a healthy behavior on the internet to stay secure, one needs to have some reflexes, daily reflexes… Let us call them <===> CyberHygiene <===> as they are about care anyway.

WHAT do WE have to take care about!? Check below please:

.

 

  • Updates about our “Operating System” (OS)
  • Updates about so-called “Third Party Programs”
  • Back-up from our files and/or the whole Hard Disk
  • Installation of protection-software, anti-malware, anti-spyware tools included…
  • Protection of our privacy
  • Encryption
  • Secure Passwords

MOST of the above mentioned are automated tasks, SO NO way to NOT use THEM 😉 GET used to IT! GET the reflexes!

The PracTICE / How To Get The Right Reflexes To Stay Secure?

programmerman-animated

          • First of ALL, check my blog ===> Cyber-Security Practice: Learn it in one week <=== and follow ALL the steps.
          • Chose a day in the week where YOU control YOUR updates and YOUR computers & mobiles security! I suggest the Friday, as I created on Twitter the “Friday Security Check Day“, hashtag = #FSCD. Get used to it on any Friday, get THE reflex!
  • On any second Tuesday on each month Microsoft and Adobe publish new updates, install THEM! THEY are a MUST! It’s the Patch-Tuesday!
  • Introduce a pledge in YOUR family, where every family member MUST sign and accept it! It will give a Community feeling and RESPONSIBILITY!

WHY CyberSecurity STARTS At Home AND Is Concerning ALL Of Us

sharing-iconWE can’t say any more that CyberSecurity is ONLY for IT-Experts as the internet is a shared ecosphere where every body has responsibility! Actions of some people can easily affect everyone else, thus meaning: WHEN NOT having installed protection software (updated antivirus) YOUR computer and/or smartphone(s) could get infected by malware and YOU will infect ALSO OTHERS who are in contact with YOU; it will become epidemic!

========> WE call it CyberHygiene. <=========

French (Français): Danger connu est danger vaincu ! Mieux vaut prévoir que valoir ! Un enfant averti en vaut deux. English: Forewarned is Forearmed! Deutsch (German): Gefahr erkannt is Gefahr gebannt! Vorsicht heisst die Mutter der Porzellankiste!
